Whether the air–material separator (AMS) is for a dust collector, This webinar will be a review of the more common problems associated with pneumatic conveying systems, focusing primarily on the more traditional rotary airlock and blower-type, dilute-phase systems. Vacuum systems as well as pressure systems will be discussed. Case studies will be presented, as will a recommended high-level step-by-step procedure to help identify the root cause of problems along with a reference table of potential solutions.
This webinar will be beneficial for plant personnel who routinely face the operational challenges presented by pneumatic conveying. Attendees will gain an appreciation for how production process changes can impact an existing pneumatic conveying system’s performance.
